PESHAWAR: The provincial police force of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) claimed on Wednesday the arrest of a suspect, Gul Rauf, involved in Bannu jailbreak.
“Lakki district police conducted an operation after receiving actionable intelligence and arrested the accused,” said Riaz Ahmed Yousufzai, spokesperson for KP police.
The police spokesperson added that the accused was arrested from Takhtekhel area of Lakki district.
KP police had announced a reward of Rs2 million for the capture of the accused, who was involved in 30 cases of terrorism and abduction, according to KP police sources.
In April 2012, over 100 militants had stormed the central prison in Bannu and freed 384 prisoners, among them a man sentenced to death for trying to assassinate former president Pervez Musharraf.
The militants had arrived on pick-ups and attacked the prison housing over 900 inmates after blowing up the main gates with rocket-propelled grenades.
They broke open locks of cells, including those housing hardened and condemned prisoners, and blasted metal doors to free the prisoners.
The banned Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan had claimed responsibility for the attack.
